    I was making 3-6 sales on a daily basis until 2 days ago. I'm tracking my links and yesterday I had over 400 hits to the sales page, but no sales. Today it's the same thing. The weird thing is that analytics show only 35 hops for yesterday and 0 for today.

    Really curious to see what's the conclusion to that, I gave up on CB right from the start after bringing lots of targeted ppc clicks and had zero sales.

    The thing is I had sales every day without a miss. And now it shows i have no hops, despite my tracking site saying that I have over 200 clicks today......

    CB tracking has always been delayed and crappy. Better to use an outside source to track your activity

    a few days ago one of my account was suspended i was promoting it via my optin page with double optin from from aweber and still got suspended.

    i got another account containing $400+ and on the check it says SUSPEND im sure if i submit a ticket they will suspend my account and say that im a member of group that is spamming.
    now im not hoping to get the $400 ill just forget about it.

    I'm wondering how all these people promoting CB products get along with all these problems, there are so many methods here which rely on CB as monetization, if they screw publishers like this they're just screwing themselves.

    If you are using the hoplink ads generator that makes ads like adsense but for CB that was discontinued...

    No I'm using the link generator. The one that creates simple links. I'm tracking the links using a different software. The thing that pisses me of the most is that after a few promotional messages you're starting to annoy your receivers and you have to make a break for a while. I just made a break and started promoting my offer and there it is... the CB sh**y software gets stuck, it doesn't show hops, sales, nothing. I just logged in and now I can't even get to analytics. There is this message "ClickBank Analytics is currently offline for scheduled maintenance. Please check back soon"

    Highly doubtful that clickbank shaves. They make enough $ as it is.

    My sales as of the past few days are very consistent in fact yesterday was a stellar day. Remember it's a Holiday 3 day weekend in the USA and perhaps people are not interested in buying as much.

    Get the f*** out of here saying this shit. CB shaves, and your hearing it from someone who makes as much as 10k to 15k payouts. i have seen all kinds of in your face stealing going on in multiple accounts. Oh, and don't think that making new accounts will get you passed the shaving. Well you can get passed it for a little while by creating a new account, but you better have a way to make your accounts completely unique from the other ones.

    I'm so tired of people defending clickbank on multiple forums saying they do not shave when i have seen it happening for years. Every network shaves, yes thats true. But if you really watch your stats on CB you will notice there will be weeks where you send more targeted traffic then the previous weeks, yet your sales drop off or stay the same.

    if you still need proof look up my cb warning thread. Where the security team actually sent me a letter saying that my sales were stolen.

    Why use clickbank if they shave you?

    You can type in EVERY network with the word "shaves" after it in google and find people claiming they do.

    I've NEVER seen anyone be able to statistically prove that clickbank shaves. It actually would be quite easy. Have someone buy a product from you and see if it gets reflected or not, all you would have to do is find a few hundred people to buy a product and see if they all reflect.

    I don't do 10k-15k a month but I do range 5-7k a month in clickbank and have no problems with them. It's actually quite easy for a vendor to screw you out of a sale in clickbank but as for clickbank themselves I simply do not believe they shave.


    Prove to me that clickbank a multi million dollar business that makes tons of money openly feels the need to put their reputation on the line to shave a few dollars here or there. I will PayPal you $500 if you can.

    First of all I don't make 10k to 15k a month I make it every 2 weeks. That is when payout is! ...and yes i do use other networks. But that does not mean I do not have tons of products that are listed on cb that I have pushed on domains, articles, videos , etc.

    I use other networks because that is the absolute best way to maximize profits as an affiliate marketer. I do not need to prove it to you that CB shaves. If you do not see it more power to you.

    Darkmage,
    Clickbank has been shaving for YEARS on END! When SO MANY people see the SAME tactics across SO MANY different niches, you know it's shaving. And it SURE AS HELL isn't a "few" dollars here and there. You need to do the math again.

    The proof is in the same pattern, month after month, year after year. I quit them A LONG time ago for EXACTLY this reason. I got tired of seeing sales every day and then "all of a sudden" absolutely NO SALES for 10-14 days. This happened OVER AND OVER again, with different accounts and in COMPLETELY different niches, and for WELL OVER 2 years! Same level of traffic YET no sales for weeks. I have NEVER seen that with adsense or amazon. "X" amount of traffic averages "X" income over time with them. NEVER the wild fluctuations of CB. And I've heard the same story over and over again from lots of peeps.

    Yeah...That's just "coincidence" when it happens to DOZENS of other people too. :rolleyes:

    Believe whatever you like but it will be a COLD DAY IN HELL before I ever promote anything via CB again.
